We’ve had a bit of bad weather this week, and by this afternoon, cabin fever had hit big time. I dug the young man out of his bean bag and off we went down the road.
It is heartening to see how lush and green everything looks after the sun-baked brown of summer.
The culverts are full of water.
Quite pleased I managed to catch this rainbow!
The hawthorn berries have all been eaten by the birds, and most of the leaves have come off the trees. Little buds have appeared, awaiting spring’s warmth before they burst forth.
There is a deer farm nearby.
There was considerable attention paid to the young bulls, who were just as curious about us. They all came crowding to the fence to have a look.
In fact, they took turns to pose for the camera. 🙂 This young chap has such a sweet face!
Quite a few breeds in there, but don’t ask me to tell you what they are just yet!
It was nice to listen to the crunch of gravel under our feet, and feel the breeze in our faces. It was slightly colder than I thought it would be – we should have worn hats!
Small details were noticed, reminders of ones who had been there before us.
The toi toi grass flowers looked very picturesque against the grey clouds.
I love looking at detail. This bark looks like it should be a yarn colourway. Can’t you just see a pair of socks in this colour!?
A little toadstool, so delicate. It looks like a ballerina’s tutu, or just like a parasol that could be used by a mouse!
Back home, future socks are swirling in my head.
These socks were favourite project of the week. I’m completely in love with the colour and the pattern. They were so addictive to knit, I think I might need to make another pair! These ones are a gift.
The pattern is Embossed Leaves, and I knitted them in Knitsch 100% merino sock in the Asterias colourway.
